Loren Rosson. Most of Doctor Who this season has been great, but that mid-season finale really deflated me. I reviewed that one here…. John Milius, Oliver Stone, Basil Poledouris, and James Earl Jones all cared deeply — some would argue, too deeply — about making this project stand out. Now finally remixed in 5. When Conan and Valeria consummate their feelings, the sweaty, grunty sex scene is scored with a theme that swells with a feeling of tragedy, as Poledouris foreshadows their eventual separation.
Conan decides to set out alone on this suicide mission, though soon enough he requires the help of Valeria and Subotai, as well as an eccentric old wizard Mako — who also happens to be narrating the film.
Conan the Barbarian (1982)
At a semi-nude orgy, the cultists of Set participate in cannibalism, and James Earl Jones turns into a snake. Here is my theory, or at least my excuse for why I unabashedly love this film: Associating it immediately with that awesome-looking Universal Studios show, and satisfied that it began with issue 1, I picked it up. Conan the Barbarian made him a bona fide movie star. Well, you inspired me Jeff. Nice write-up! Thanks for the comments, Loren.
